Hydroxyurea (HU) is a simple organic compound currently used as a cancer chemotherapeutic agent. It acts specifically on the S-phase of the cell cycle by inhibiting the enzyme ribonucleoside diphosphate reductase, thereby hindering the reductive conversion of ribonucleotides to deoxyribonucleotides and thus limiting de novo DNA synthesis. HU is employed in(More)
A series of N'-[(5-chloro-3-methyl-1-phenyl-1H-pyrazol-4-yl)methylene] 2/4-substituted hydrazides were synthesized using appropriate synthetic route and characterized by elemental analysis and spectral data. The anticonvulsant activity of some of the synthesized compounds were evaluated against maximal electroshock induced seizure (MES) and subcutaneous(More)
Ceftaroline is a novel broad-spectrum cephalosporin antibiotic currently under US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) review for a new drug application (NDA), filed by Cerexa, Inc. (a wholly owned subsidiary of Forest Laboratories), for the treatment of complicated skin and skin-structure infections (cSSSIs) and community-associated pneumonia (CAP). The(More)
A series of substituted (benzamidostyryl) benzimidazole (3a–r) were synthesized and evaluated for their possible anti-inflammatory and ulcerogenicity. The structures of the synthesized compounds were confirmed on the basis of their spectral data and elemental analysis. Majority of the compounds were active in carrageenan-induced hind paw edema method test(More)
A series of quinoline-incorporated substituted thiadiazole were designed and synthesized using appropriate synthetic route keeping in view the structural requirement of pharmacophore and evaluated for anticonvulsant and CNS activities. After intraperitoneal injection to mice, some synthesized derivatives were examined in the maximal electroshock seizure(More)
A series of 1,2,4-triazine derivatives Va (1-24) and Vb (1-24) were synthesized and evaluated for their anti-anxiety and anti-inflammatory activities. The structures of the synthesized compounds were confirmed on the basis of their spectral data. Many of the triazine compounds were found to possess good activity. Especially, compounds bearing the sulfur(More)
A series of 7-[4-(5-aryl-1,3,4-oxadiazole-2-yl)piperazinyl] quinolones (I-XXI) were synthesized using an appropriate synthetic route and characterized by elemental and spectral analysis. The antibacterial activities of all the synthesized compounds were evaluated against identifiable bacterial strains. Compounds III, IV, VII, VIII, IX, X, XI, XV, &XVIII(More)
A series of 2-(substituted aryloxy)-5-(substituted benzylidene)-3-phenyl-2,5-dihydro-1H-[1,2,4] triazin-6-one were designed & synthesized using appropriate synthetic route keeping in view the structural requirement of pharmacophore and evaluated for anticonvulsant activity and CNS activities. After intraperitoneal injection to mice, some synthesized(More)
A series of quinoxalinone derivatives was synthesized by the condensation of 1,2-diaminobenzene with alpha-ketoglutaric acid to yield 3-(3-oxo-3,4-dihydroquinoxalin-2-yl) propionic acid (2) and then treated with hydrazine hydrate to yield its hydrazones (3). This was further reacted with substituted aromatic aldehydes to produce final compounds (4a-r).(More)
A number of secondary and tertiary amines bearing 2-chloro-6-methylquinoline were synthesized by nucleophilic substitution reaction of 3-(chloromethyl)-2-chloro-6-methylquinoline with substituted aromatic primary and secondary amines in presence of catalytic amount of triethylamine (TEA) and K(2)CO(3). All the compounds were characterized by combined use of(More)
